This is the one I use,,, no dramas, easy install, good pick-up.

Pay no heed to the fact its Belkin - Ive never had any problems with this brand.

i guess another thing im worried about is getting reception. would an internal card provide more over a usb application?

Its really going to depend on how frequent your hot spots are or how good the general signal broadcast is.

N is supposed to have better area reception than G. Your did say you where using it for a desktop computer, not a laptop. So I assumed you where not moving around too much.

Ive noticed better reception with this unit over my previous card. Example: Im picking up all the wireless setups of my neighbors, where as before I didnt.

The unit itself is as long as a card antenna, so Id imagine the in-built antenna in this unit has the same gain as a PCI unit.

Im happy to be corrected... so anyone else wanna jump in?
